Minnesotans haven't been able to buy liquor on Sundays for the past 81 years, but that booze ban might soon be lifted.

State Representative Jenifer Loon of Eden Prairie has been trying to get the law changed for the last four years.

A Minnesota House committee did approve a measure yesterday that would allow liquor stores to remain open on Sundays. The bill will now move to the floor to be debated by the entire House.

Loon told Fox 9, “This is a change that consumers have been seeking and retailers have been seeking for a number of years in Minnesota.”

Unions and small businesses oppose the change because of extra labor expenses from being open an extra day.
